Oh YUM! This was perfectly awesome, and so fast and easy to put together. The aroma towards the end of baking had everybody coming to the kitchen to ask what was cooking. I used meduim salsa and it was just right for our tastes...not too spicy, but had a little kick. I used chicken breast tenders and put in a whole can (12 oz. vacuum pack) of corn. I didn't measure the cheese, but I know I put at least a cup of finely shredded Mexican 4-cheese blend on top. The rice I used was just a store-brand long grain. I will be making this often. It is so easy that even my kids could make it and not mess it up. THANK YOU Barbara!!

Wonderful and tasty. I did add 1 cup of rinsed and cooked black beans in step #1. I would also suggest to lightly season chicken breast with salt and pepper before baking. I will be making this dish often.

This was absolutely delicious! I added 1 cup of black beans as well. Then about 10 drops of tabasco to the medium salsa we used because we love things spicy! I cooked it for 45 mins like the recipe says to but the rice was not fully cooked so I added 20 more minutes to it. Then I removed the chicken, sprinkled it with cheese, then sprinkled the remaining cheese on the rice,corn and beans and let it cook about 5 more minutes to allow the cheese to melt. The chicken was tender and the rice could have been a meal in itself.

I followed the recipe and when I took the foil off after cooking it was pretty dry and the rice was still hard. I had even added the water from the can of corn. So I added about a half cup more water, salt and red pepper and losely covered and cooked for about 15 more minutes. I added more cheese and let it sit in the hot oven for about 20 more minutes. Now the rice is perfect and the dish taste pretty good. Pretty basic but the ease and taste makes it worth trying.

This is great, soooo easy to prepare and tastes terrific. This is one of the best one-dish meals I have had in a very long time. The mixture of the rice and soup comes out so creamy, and the salsa gives it a nice kick. I served this with some refried beans and it was a great meal. Thanks so much for posting this one, I will be making it often!!!!

This dish is wonderful...I loved it, and so did my hubby and my little boy. I added a little more water (2tbs) and a little more rice (about 1/3 cup) and put some shredded cheddar cheese in the mix also. Thank you so much for a fast and yummy dish!

This was very easy to prepare and great because it's a meal "in one dish!" Flavour was great and I used the Jasmine long grain rice - very unique taste. I would certainly make again!

Delicious! I used a spicy hot salsa and skinless chicken legs. Very tasty. I served it along with steamed broccoli.

This was very good, I used medium salsa and I replaced the cream of chicken soup with low sodium, low fat chicken broth. I will certainly make it again, it was enjoyed by all! Thanks for sharing.

Really quite tasty. The rice has a great flavor and the chicken is tender. I sprinkled the chicken breast with some garlic as well as the chili powder and let marinate for about 2 hours before baking. All in all a good, easy dish with universal appeal - DH, DS and 2 yr old granddaughter all liked it!
